It’s been fifteen years since Major League Baseball instituted Interleague Play and the game has been better for it.  Midseason attendance spikes. It drives revenue and frankly, especially in the case of regional rivalries, a little healthy competition between family members is never bad.

 

In Chicago, it’s the “Crosstown Classic”.  In northern California, it’s the “Bay Bridge Series”.  However, the most famous of these regional rivals would easily have to be New York’s very own “Subway Series.”

 

Before Interleague Play was a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye, the “Subway Series” was pretty common in New York.  After all, two New York teams have faced each other in the World Series

With the Yankees battling injuries and the Mets battling…themselves? This week I turn my attention to the AL Central.  It’s May 7th and the Cleveland Indians are in first.

 

What?!

 

That’s right.  This is a team once voted the most disliked team in all of Major League Baseball (even over the Yankees)!  A team picked to place dead this year is actually in first place.

 

Sure, we’re only entering the second week of May but according to the “experts”, shouldn’t the Cleveland Indians be a hundred games out of first by now?

 

Maybe it’s just me, but have you noticed how this year’s Cleveland Indians are looking more and more like the

Manager of the New York Yankees...

Nice job if you can get it...

And if you get it...would you want it?

Yankees fans might be staring at the walls, but believe it or not, there’s actually still a World Series to be played. 

Yes...on occasion, they play one without us.

If it makes you feel better, we aren’t the only fans with ridiculous bravado.  A friend from Philly actually said, “The Rangers and the Giants are in the World Series.  Who’s gonna watch that?”

(Umm...I don’t know.  How about the two biggest states in the Union?) 

So, Yankees fans now look to the future as the team locks up Skipper Girardi for a three year contract.  No one should be shocked about this.  If you are, you are way too emotional and

Roger Clemens is going to trial.  I smell a road trip! Who's with me?!

Too soon?  Come on. He's not going to prison.  If we learned anything from the recent actions of the American Justice System, anyone can get off (as long as they pay up of course).  I hear Blagojevich's attorneys are available.

Speaking of the super inappropriate...

I was on a New Jersey Transit train heading into the city yesterday.  I had a couple of job interviews (which went disastrous of course).  Nonetheless, it was a nice trip in as I traveled with Yankee fans headed toward the matinee.  There I was on the platform with the normal mix of fathers and children, uncles with nephews (and nieces, of course) and friends playing hookey from work.  You could hear them
